The yellow vests movement continues to spread across Europe. Originally from France, there were protests in Belgium, the Netherlands and even Germany.
After protests in The Hague and Nijmegen last week, the Dutch protests will now be organised in Amsterdam, newspaper Het Parool reports.

According to a spokesperson for Amsterdam mayor Femke Halsema, a yellow vest protest was announced on Saturday in the city.
Amsterdam isn’t the first capital to see a yellow vest protest. Earlier Paris, Brussels and Berlin we’re the location of these protests.
The movement, which is mostly peaceful, is already successful in France as President Macron cancelled several tax measures after an increasing number of protests.
But the protests are far from over as several unions have said they will join the movement, as there is a lot of dissatisfaction with Macron’s policies.
